so easy to remove the switch. I first marked the wires, 1-2-3-4 and then removed them from the old switch. removed the old switch and replaced with the new one and plugged in the wires as per markings. tried it out before replacing the top and it works perfectly. no longer timid about effecting repairs on my own. the diagrams on the website were a great help. this is a great company to do business with. part was here in 3 days.

I ordered the retaining rings from PartSelect and by mistake I did enter the wrong address for the delivery. I got a notification that the parts were delivered. When I called PartsSelect they toll me not to worry, they send me a new shipment to the correct address immediately. I have to add the retaining clips used by PartsSelect or KitchenAid are substandard, they are not hardened enough to hold the load of the motor and bread dough. These clips keep on popping off and losing tension.

Teeth worn/broken off part of the worm gear

Removed shroud and gear case top. No snap-ring pliers, so I used two small vice grips, one on each lobe, and spread and "worried" the ring up the shaft. Changed out all ghe grease in case of metal chips. Put it back tegether. Works fine.

Stripped worm gear

Used the meat grinder attachment, with the retaining ring too tight for the motor to turn the augur, so a gear stripped and the mixer would not run. I opened the mixer top, removed the transmission cover, removed enough grease to diagnose the problem (6 teeth stripped off the steel worm gear). I ordered a replacement steel worm gear and, while I was at it, a new retaining ring, bevel gear, retaining pin and the large planetary gear, as I could not tell the condition of these until I disassembled the whole gear train. I then removed the gear train components (needed a snap ring pliers to remove the retaining ring -- I don't recommend trying to remove it with an y other tool), washed them in acetone, cleaned out the transmission case and went over it with a magnet to get stray gear tooth remnants, replaced the worm and bevel gears and reassembled, using the original planetary gear, retaining pin and retaining ring. Filled the bottom of the transmission with planetary grease first, then, once the gear train had been replaced, slathered a big pile of grease over it, replaced the transmission cover. The machine then ran perfectly, so I replaced the mixer's top cover and decorative band and was back in business mixing with it about 30 minutes after cleaning the last of the grease off my hands. I should mention, I used a LOT of paper towels for this job. This was a fun job and I was sorry that it was so easy to do, as I enjoy working with gears and grease.

The motor was running but the mixer wasn't turning

After trying to make a batch of heavy frosting, my KitchenAid mixer final stopped turning. After watching a video of how to change the grease in a similar model on PartsSelect and seeing it wasn't that hard to take apart, I decided to give it a try myself. Removing the cover exposed a completely worn gear drive. Luckily, it was easy to determine which parts needed replacing and PartSelect sent them in no time. Once I put everything back together, it sounded terrible which was pretty tough to take. As it turned out, the problem was flecks of metal from the gear were still in the grease and were getting caught in the mechanism. Once I thoroughly cleaned all the grease out and gave it some fresh grease the machine worked great. Much better than before. I only wish I had swapped the grease out at the same time. Thank you PartsSelect for saving me hundreds of dollars on a new machine!

The KitchenAid is "old school" in that it is held together with simple (but very stout) bolts and screws. I removed about 10 such fasteners, slipped off the gear retainer, and pulled it out. On Sunday, a very nice customer service rep helped me order the right part, but I did the rest on line in a matter of seconds. It shipped on Monday and arrived on Wednesday. Took about 10 minutes to put everything back. I REALLY WISH everything was this easy in 2012!!!
